The Yelmo flying area is located in the Sierra de Segåura, in the province of Jaén. The main take-off is at 1800 m and its orientation is W, admitting NW and SW winds.

In general, the winds are predominantly westerly, due to the Guadalquivir valley.

In case of S wind, there is a take-off towards this orientation, although in previous years we have travelled to Pegalajar to carry out the task (2h trip).

Several national leagues have been held here, 1 Spanish championships in 2022, and the FIA (International Air Festival) has been held here for more than 20 years.

In distance, it has exceeded 200km in a straight line (National League 2021) and 140km triangles have been made (Pre-PWC 2023).
